Death dealer/molly hatchet album cover
I've loved this painting from the moment I first saw it on a molly hatchet record album. I don't really recall
When the specific time that was, but I also remembered the artist's named being signed... 73 frazetta.
Frank frazetta, the most revered and beloved fantasy artist in our modern times, if not forever. He is entitled to be called master and icon and living legend. Frazetta's 1973 painting of the deathdealer is beloved by rockstars, bikers, tattoo artists,
We've seen his images reproduced over the years on the sides of vans and the hoods of funny cars, to motorcyle tanks
And tailgates. Molly hatchet used the death dealer painting for their debut album in 1978.
Ingredients: the horse was $5. I had to break the neck and reposition and sculpt it to be more horizontal.
I added a saddle from a different horse and had to modify it and the harness. The horse collar was buttons.
The blanket is vinyl.
I sculpted some on the feet of the horse and cut the horse's tail to make it resemble the painting.
The figure is a dcuc ares figure with sculpted helmet and punched out holes for the chainmail armor and
Other details. Vinyl for the boot shinguards and googly eyes on the boots and the chestplate.
The cloak was cut out and painted leather.
The skirt was black fabric with holes punched out for the chainmail and glued down.
The shield was cut out of bristol board paper and sculpted over.
The reaper axe was made the same way and attached to a wooden dow rod.
The sword was from a hellboy ii prince nuada figure, with sculpted hilt and a legendary conan sheath. It can be
Removed/attached magnetically to the back of the belt.
Other accessories include: a painted background, a custom base, a pullover shirt, a teeth/bone necklace
And a head from a pict native(made from an asorbing man head cast)
Sadly, Frank Frazetta has passed away today(May 10th, 2010) at the age of 82...but His Legacy will continue
